Yeah fucking hell, at least make it about a more recent comedy show, like Tittybangbang or something like that.

:shocked:


I don't think that even classes as comedy! And if it does then it shouldn't. It's wank. Bring back Peep Show is what I say!

Also Morris has done comedy sketches based around dead babies, so its not like its a massive leap.

You're like a magazine quiz, if you answer mainly blues you're a swimming pool attendent humour, if you answer mainly reds you're Chippy, who knows all the types of humour ever. :roll:

Keith Mandement: This pool's been open nearly 40 years, and, in all that time I only slipped up once, to my mind. I was engaged in a particularly tricky word puzzle and 40 people had broken in and were in the pool, playing around, ducking, bombing and doing all manner of prohibited activities, and eventually someone was killed.

Interviewer: But given that your sole responsibility is to maintain the security of the pool, isn't that an indictment against yourself?

Keith Mandement: Well, I would say this - I've been working here for 18 years, and in 1975 no one died. In 1976, no one died. In 1977, no one died. In 1978, no one died. In 1979, no-one died. In 1980... someone died. In 1981, no one died. In 1982 there was the incident with the pigeon. In 1983, no one died. In 1984, no one died. In 1985, no one died. In 1986... I mean, I could go on.

Interviewer: No.

Keith Mandement: Right.

I can't believe it when I read front pages of papers asking for the care workers to be sacked. Care workers are overworked, underpaid and underappreciated. The job that they do is very difficult and only made more difficult when the government makes cuts in public spending for care.

Instead of people just saying "I want to cut out the anus' of the people who did this to baby P with rusty razors", people should be looking at how these problems can be avoided in the future to make sure that there aren't any more Baby P's. There were short fallings in regards to the social care provided, but to blame the care workers themselves would be stupid. The problem lies in the lack of funding, the staff cuts and the backbreaking ammount of paperwork needed for their job which all results in the care workers not being able to carry out the job properly.

If people really are affected by the death of Baby P, they'll want to stop there being any more similar deaths happening, the best way to do that isn't to kill the people that did it, or sack the care workers who were not responsible, but to equip them to carry out their jobs properly.

Got it. £8 in HMV at the moment in a nice sleeve with a spanky extras disc. Bargain.

Yeah, I got that one. Although I do find the menu screens infuriatingly difficult to navigate. I realise this is in keeping with the whole Newsnight satire thing, but it still does my head in. However, the sketch about the bullying Vicars makes everything worth it.

I thought the menus were pretty cool, once I'd worked them out.
